Reporting a combined annual revenue of $34 billion, about 19,000 companies make up the highly competitive logistics services industry. Logistics services providers – commonly known as freight forwarders or third-party logistics companies (3PLs) – strategize and manage the efficient transportation of freight from its point of origin to its destination for their shipper customers. While some 3PLs own their own vehicles, many are asset-less and leverage high-powered technology to match freight with its best carrier option.
Founded in 1985 upon a core belief in customer service, Evans is a leading third-party provider of custom logistics solutions for a diverse range of shippers across North America. For maximum agility, Evans is asset-less and privately owned, fueled by unmatched technology and its uncommonly dedicated team. While Evans’ annual revenue is quickly surpassing $120M, the 3PL has not and will not deviate from its trademark dedication to customer service.
Evans’ team is 60+ strong. About 45 team members work from within its beautifully designed headquarters in the lively and quickly growing community of Brookfield, Wisconsin, just 30 minutes west of downtown Milwaukee. The rest work from one of Evans’ satellite offices located in Minneapolis, MN; Chattanooga, TN; Santa Rosa Beach, FL; and Bogota, Colombia.
Heart and hustle run through Evans’ veins, defining everything we do. Our team is dedicated, smart, collaborative, and uniquely hilarious. Freight management is not for the faint of heart, so we keep things light with fun events like cookout competitions and Brewers games. Evans’ management team is supportive and will work with you to make sure you have what you need to succeed. As a small-to-medium enterprise, every member of our team has a direct impact upon the growth of our customers, carrier partners, and of course, upon Evans; that’s why our slogan is Growing Together!
The Ideal Evans Candidate:
Evans’ ideal candidate is eager to learn, hungry to succeed, happy to help, and ready to have fun. Evans runs like a well-oiled machine made up of many cogs, so our ideal candidate must be a team player as well as a motivated self-starter. He or she handles stress with grace, is an exceptional communicator, and is dedicated to the above-and-beyond provision of service for our customers, carrier partners, and team members, a mission that has come to be known as The Evans Experience, or “EX.”
